Watch your words!

Updated on August 13, 2016

There are two words that I notice people saying alot and I feel they don't know the meaning of these words. These words are on different sides of the spectrum and are antonyms of one another. Of course I'm talking about the words love and hate. These two words are thrown around very loosely and most people don't know how extreme the meaning of them are.

Let's start on the positive side of things and talk about the word love and what it means. Today you see people say, I love this muffin or a person they have known for a short amount of time. In Phillipians chapter 2 verses 3-4 it tells us what love does. That's right it's a verb, an action, something someone does for another person, not a feeling someone has. Those verses above says, " Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conciet. Rather,in humility value others above yourselves. Not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others." Imagined if married couples did what these two verses say, the average length of marriage might be longer than 8 years.
Jesus showed the ultimate showing of love by dieing on the cross so we can be united with the father with faith.

On the other side people are to eager to say they hate one another. Without knowing the severity of that word hate can be dangerous. Jesus states that if you hate someone you kill them in your heart. Matthew 5:21-22 Jesus says “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you thateveryone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire."

Just a reminder of how powerful these two four letter words are.

      Thank you Garrett you are very much appreciated for this timely reminder of the four letter word in your Hub.

      It's so timely because it's used here on HP

      But when I see it the last thing comes to my mind is a ginuine Christian. Here's why.

      Lu 6:45 A good man brings good out of the good treasure of his heart, but a wicked man brings what is wicked out of his wicked treasure; for out of the heart’s abundance his mouth speaks.

      Mt 12:34 Offspring of vipers, how can YOU speak good things, when YOU are wicked? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.

      Mt 5:22 However, I say to you that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice; and whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court; whereas whoever says, ‘You despicable fool!’ will be liable to the fiery Ge·henʹna.

      There is a judgment by our Heavenly Father on account of how we treat out fellow humans.

      The word fool is just the biggest example of this Scripture.

      It's a shame people are blind to the meaning of using the word in a wrathful way.

      That is how our Heavenly Father feels about it as written for us to know.

      Thank you again.
